New used bird

Got a thought in my melen now. I found a bird 96 4.6 litre. Problem is it has 207000 miles. Isthe buy worth it. How long can the car really go. 1300 at a dealer. Just a thought.

Re: New used bird

No offence but how long is a piece of string ? the car will go as long as it does. Is it a good buy ? You make the decision. It is 14 years old. Well 15 in a few months.

Re: New used bird

Hi, personally I would never buy any vehicle with over 100,000 miles on it unless it was an antique. With 200,000 miles, it is Murphy's Law in progress. [my opinion] But that is all some people can truely afford and better than financing a car that you can't afford.

Re: New used bird

I have an 06 charger that ive payed off. I garaged it for upgrades and use my 93 bird as a daily driver. Its not that I cant afford the car. I just really have alot of love for the bird. That and ford has not asked the gov. For a loan. Lol. I do feel the same way. You guys are both right. I love the idea of a 4.6.. I actually wanted a 5.0 bird when I bought mine, just could not find one. dont get me wrong, I love my car. I just love that wrap around look of dash on the 94 and up. I belive it was 94 when the dash design chaned.

Alternater gone. Starter is toast. Trans is working but leaking pretty bad. Not worth 1300. Maby 500 at best.
